It is Faretrotter's policy to respect your privacy when it comes to any information we may collect while you interact with our website, API, or services. This Privacy Policy applies to faretrotter.com, Alexa skill, mobile app, API, or any other service operated by Faretrotter, (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "Faretrotter"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the terms and conditions, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Website Visitors

Like most website businesses, Faretrotter collects information, which isn’t personally identifying, that web browsers and other services make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Faretrotter's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Faretrotter's visitors use our website. From time to time, Faretrotter may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Faretrotter also collects some personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users who have opted in or created API accounts or email address. Faretrotter does not publicly disclose personally-identifying information. We only disclose user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

How we collect Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Faretrotter's websites choose to interact with Faretrotter in ways that require Faretrotter to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Faretrotter gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

We collect personally identifying information in four ways:
1) We ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a name, username and email address
2) We ask visitors who want to read our newsletter for their email address
3) In Alexa, some users request to have an email sent to them, so we store this email address at opt-in
4) We may, at times, collect IP addresses for users who create accounts

Security

The security of your Personal Information is very important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
